We stayed at the campground over 4th of July weekend for the first time. Although the campground was nearly filled to capacity, we were amazed at how quiet it was. The campground is a little older than some in the area, but it is very well maintained. Our kids loved the pool and playground. The owners really do enforce quiet time and do their best to make sure that Kilby Lake remains family friendly. We had a disturbing neighbor that moved in over the weekend that was drunk and throwing around foul language (loud enough surrounding sides could hear). The neighbor received one warning and then was evicted from the campground; we were very appreciative. We will definitely be back again. We camped here in a Tent.
It is picturesque with greenery and wild berries but not big rig friendly. There are narrow sites and lots of mature trees that inhibit satellite reception. The owners were friendly and strictly enforced quiet time. No sewer hookups were available when we were there (full hookups limited to permanent units), just a small 250 gallon drop tank that had to be pumped three times. Our friends who stayed there in a pop-up at the same time reported clean showers and restrooms but we did not use them. The sandy terrain and very high iron water that left rust everywhere. We had AT&T phone which had no reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall a very nice campground. The sites are big and most provide lots of privacy. The majority of the campground is very wooded except for a large center play area with playground equipment, a shelter and game room. We played a quick game of football within this area. There are quite a few seasonal sites, but they are well kept and everyone is friendly. The full hookup sites have a holding tank for sewer. Mine overflowed a little when I dumped before leaving. So, I had to use the dump station to finish. I'm not sure the sewer hookup is worth the extra $3 per night. Also, the interior roads are mostly sand, so don't plan on doing any biking. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well maintained, secluded sites, a great clean pool and super friendly staff are the perks at Kilby Lake Campground. The kids had a ball, and the bathrooms and showers were fantastic. We love Kilby Lake and will be back. We camped here in a Tent.
Overall we are not big fans of private campgrounds (as opposed to state or county parks), but Kilby Lake is one we'd return to. The pool and hot tub were nice, and the mini golf course was fun. They had a lot of fun activities for the children. The best part though were the sites. Large open grassy sites, yet with trees and underbrush separating you from your neighbor so you didn't feel you're on top of one another. The staff was very friendly, and escorted us to our site. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Some of the biggest camp sites I've ever seen. Excellent privacy with trees and brush between sites. Nice amenities but we didn't use most. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Good relaxing stay. Lots of bugs, but that's unavoidable. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Campground is in a forest of oak trees near a small lake - a nice setting. There is much to do for families - swimming, fishing, boating, game room & playground, and a petting zoo and bird sanctuary. There is also a small store in the campground office. The showers and toilets were immaculate. It is a lovely setting, but some campers don't respect quiet time hours, and the staff does not enforce them. This made our stay unpleasant. There should be better enforcement of the campground regulations. We camped here in a camper.

We found this park to be clean and the staff friendly, with the exception of a female staff person who was telling the children at the pool not to keep jumping in because it drops the water level of the pool. The Saturday night owl calling was neat-for adults as well as children. Some sights by the park had a cement slab to park on which was nice and level and also cut down on dirt/sand, yet was surrounded by trees. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground, great for families. Facilities are clean and well maintained. I would give this campground a 10, except that I found the owners to be a bit anal about noise after quiet hour. I appreciate quiet hours as do all campers, but in this campground I guess just opening and closing the door to your trailer after quiet hour is frowned upon! We camped here in a camper.
